tv NBC11 News The Bay Area at 6 NBC May 24, 2011 6:00pm-7:00pm PDT
now. good evening, everyone. thank you very much for joining us. i'm garvin thomas. >> upset with her appearance, an explosive temper and constant paranoia are part of a new book that blasts sarah palin and has a bay area connection. elise is joining us. you talked to the controversial author who has a bit of a controversial past himself. >> reporter: he does. he wrote this book over two years and they came up with this book and say it shows in black and white what sarah palin is really like behind closed door. >> sarah can deny what someone says in an interview. she cannot deny her own words.
>> reporter: after scouring through more than 60,000 e-mails between sarah palin and her aide, frank bailey, he feels he knows the governor better than herself. >> all of us have a profound sense of sorrow for the woman and her family. she flies off the handle. she is just -- she has a killer bee mentality. >> reporter: to allegedly losing interest in being the governor of alaska long before she resigned. a new tell-all book morris co-authored paints an unflattering picture. >> every time we'd go and get to a new e-mail, i would close my eyes and say, i can't read this. because it was one more attack. all it was was attack and counter attack. >> reporter: the book called "blind allegiance" stems from thousands of e-mails that bailey kept during his time by her side. >> each one was a different
e-mail. >> reporter: he says more than anything he wants the book to be a warning about unvetted politicians slipping through the process. >> it would be a disaster for her to be president of the united states. or even in his mind, even to be a voice in the republican party. >> reporter: meanwhile, palin supporters telling other media organizations that the book is a work of fixz and alaska's attorney general is investigating any improprieties involving use of the e-mails. >> we spent not only tens and thousands of dollars, but hundreds of man-hours with the attorney general going through this page by page by page. >> reporter: and, again, the book is out today. morris, a wealthy former wall street executive said that he will do nate all of the proceeds from the book to local charities. nbc bay area news. >> thank you, elise. friends and family are
searching for a missing teenager around 4:00 this morning, relatives found her bicycle in a field. students went online and rallied dozens of students to join them in today's widespread search. >> i think she was upset in a general sort of way and maybe feeling a little isolated, is all i can say. >> reporter: and this is a wide search area. >> well, the longer we wait and talk, the bigger the search area. >> alison's friends created a facebook page dedicated to finding the sophomore. a four-alarm fire in san leandro inside of an apartment building reportedly started on the lower floors and climbed to the stop story. one person suffered minor injuries. the fire was reported just after 3:00 this afternoon.
no word objen what caused it. the family of brian stow is suing the los angeles dodgers. the civil suit was filed today in a los angeles superior courtroom. they are claiming that lax opening day security led to the attack and the 42-year-old father in a coma. >> this is not a case in which the family wants "money." this is a case where they want to take care of him and make sure those kids are taken care of. >> reporter: prominent l.a. attorney filed the lawsuit on behalf of the family on bryan stow. he's remained in critical conditions since the beating he suffered in the dodgers' stadium parking lot opening day. sunday police arrested one of the suspects, a parolee. this civil lawsuit is not only against the assailants but also against the dodgers'
organization and the owner an as individual for allegedly failing to provided a quit security. >> they got rid of two-thirds of their security people over the last two years, they fired their security director and to give you some idea of how inadequate it was, when they finally got the chief of the l.a. police over there, he said, hey, this is what you need. >> reporter: the filing alleges mismanagement and that the organization was to front his life style. he notes that the dodgers money went to another entity owned by mccort. >> if you are paying all of this high rent to yourself from the stadium, i guess let's cut security. >> reporter: the suit alleges that they did not stop a growing gang presence in the stadium. during the opening day gang, unruly spectators began intimidating stow simply because he's a giants' fan. >> that started and there was nothing done to quell it.
then as it goes out and the rhetoric increases, there is nothing done. we have pretty good evidence that there was a dodgers' usher that sees this and no security is called or security is called but they don't get there. he's on the ground 15 or 20 minutes before anybody gets there. >> reporter: the damages sought by the stow family will run into the millions of dollars. the attorney will not estimate how many million but said this. >> in similar cases that we've had, certainly it ranges, you know, 20 to 40 in that general area. that was patrick healy reporting. former giants slugger barry bonds has offered to pay for the college education of stow's children. new tonight at 6:00, each and every b.a.r.t. police officer may get each of their own stun gun. they are considering buying new tasers instead of checking out the weapons from a common pool.
b.a.r.t. officials say officers' familiarity and confidence increases when they are assigned one. mehserle said he thought he was reaching for his stun gun and the b.a.r.t. board will consider offering $141,000 to buy the tasers on thursday. also new at 6:00, a cal state east bay professor arrested in nigeria has just been released. steve ugbah took a break to run for governor in the nigerian state. he lost the election but claims that it was rigged. now, yesterday police arrested ugbah and other members of his party for inciting public disturbances. tonight we find out that he's been released from jail. we'll bring you more information as it becomes available. for the first time in 45
years, homicides and other violent crimes in california are down to their lowest points. preliminary figures from the department of justice shows a major decline in homicides in the state's largest counties. in 2009, there were more than 1900 homicides compared to more than 2100 in 2008. figures for other violent crimes, such as rape, robbery, and aggravated assault are also down. the only increase is with gang-related homicides which went from 22 to 40% of all homicides in the state. kicking the can down the road. the city of san jose is delaying a decision on whether to formally declare an official state of emergency. this comes as tens and millions of dollars are in the red. kris sanchez is working the story for us. this problem is not just going away. why the delay? >> well, it's not like they came into a wind fall of cash overnight. the city still has a $115 million deficit and faces
hundreds of layoffs. 600 for this year alone. and that's why the city council voted 8-3 to go forth and create a declaration of emergency that they will vote on on june 21st. and that's because the city council, rather the mayor, wanted to make sure that his staff had the ability to defend the measure in court and that's exactly where a lot of folks figure this will end up. >> the people united can never be defeated. >> reporter: that is a message that the city of san jose workers want their council to hear as they consider declaring a fiscal emergency as they reduce benefits now and in retirement. wisconsin senator, one of the 14 senators who left his state to deny the governor the votes he needed for reforms that many say were all about union busting. >> mayor is picking the nuclear option to blow up the system. it makes absolutely no sense and
hurts the city of san jose zf the city is $150 million in the red and police and fire is included. what the city spent on retirement is out of control. going from $63 million for the 2000 to 2001 year to $186 million. >> to blame the workers is truly unfair and we've taken significant pay cuts and, you know, it just can't continue. >> they spent $27 million to research a ballpark but that money isn't being put into public safety. i think their priorities are completely turned around. >> i love working for the city of san jose. it's a great city and i love to represent the city of san jose but it's going to make it hard. >> it's not a state of emergency. really. they have all kinds of money. they know they do i think they
want to dehumanize the city. >> the mayor would not put down the pension reform until the people that pay the bills, the voters. >> reporter: the mayor said that it's the tenth year of red ink. so for anyone to say that it's not a problem is absolutely not true, in his opinion. he wants to make sure that there is action today to put off a disaster down the road. by the way, an assembly man that represents santa clara county has asked them to take a look at this and make sure that it's legal for the mayor to declare a state of emergency under california law. in san jose, kris sanchez, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, kris. still ahead at 6:00, a deadly bud showing up in california hospitals. where it came from and when doctors say it's going to arrive in the bay area. loking your car is not enough. i'm marianne. coming up, what police say you should do to preveant vehicle break-in. plus, a key vote today for what could be a new area code

sexy. some say young children are not getting the attention and resources that they need. >> we are mamas in pajamas demanding high quality public education here in san francisco and across california. >> we've seen library closures, loss of p.e., art, music, loss of the school year that has gone down by five days. >> hosted an online rally at educate our state.org. sacramento was another scene of a rally. this one for immigrant rights. hundreds turned out for immigrant day. reducing certain background checks and making it both legal and illegal immigrants to gain access to food stamps. >> immigrants have always been a vital part of society and they are here to say that they are
here and they are important and trying to talk to other legislatures to make sure that they understand how important these measures are really. >> much of the legislation makes no distinction between legal and illegal immigrants. critics say it's a big difference and the measures should reflect that. a growing number of californians are looking to the sun to lower their energy costs but for many solar is still an expensive option. >> joe rosata junior shows us a new program that is working to stop that. >> it's a small house and built in 1910. >> reporter: dan has an activist soul. over the years he's dreamed an activist dream, solar panels adorning the roof of his oakland home. >> we thought about it for a long time and in the past it was pretty darn expensive so not something that we were ready to drop many thousands of dollars on. >> reporter: last summer he
finally got his wish and it didn't even cost him anything. >> i guess it was more like going out to dinner at a cheap restaurant, one extra time per month and less like buying a car. >> reporter: he was able to tap into his inner sun through a program by solar company sungevity. >> we have a solar lease. no money down, just pay as you go. >> reporter: the company leases solar panels to customers allowing them to cut their energy costs over time with a clean energy conscience. >> this home will go from maybe a footprint of 20 tons of carbon over the next decade to one ton of carbon. it's a massive reduction. >> reporter: today the sierra club announced that they will be teaming up to promote its 1.4 million members to go solar. >> the grassroots weight of the sierra club towards solutions. >> reporter: the club's director says solar, still too expensive for many homeowners, creative programs are making it more affordable.
>> the solutions to our environmental problems are not only here but they are practical and affordable. putting solar on your rooftops is easy to do. >> reporter: he initially raised his bill $30 a month but expects to save money over the term of the lease. finally living up to his activist ideals. nbc bay area news. well, there was plenty of sunshine around the bay area today. that's going to change. jeff ranieri. >> did you guys keep your umbrellas close by? >> it's in my trunk. close enough, right? >> yeah. and there are going to be people selling umbrellas for $20 for all of the people who maybe got rid of theirs. yes, we are talking about rainfall in our forecast. it was still near the base. low 70s in the east bay with 71 in livermore and cooler for the peninsula with a mix of 50s and 60s. right now we're dropping off as
we have a pretty good westerly wind helping temperatures to push down into the 50s and 60s. take a look at this. yes, a winter weather advisory up across the sierra. temperatures not cold enough for snow. we don't have any precipitation but it's going to drop and quite a bit as we head throughout the next 12 hours. here's the rainfall off to the north. that's going to continue to slide north as we head into tomorrow morning to bring us showers in the forecast. it's not a strong system but there is enough rainfall associated with it that we will have measurable rainfall as we head into wednesday with an area of low pressure that is strong for this time of year. it's going to head into the northwest but the bottom edge will prove strong enough to bring us this rain as we head into wednesday. upper 40s and low 50s and by 10:00 and 11:00, it will still be cool with only 50s expected from the north bay down to the south bay. so let's get a look.
only expecting trace amounts of rainfall from the north to south bay, mainly for the peninsula and north bay and up across the sierra, possibly two to four inches of snowfall with this snow level at a very rare for may, 5,000 feet. so be prepared for winter conditions if you're headed this way. we want to give you a quick update throughout the central and southern plains. oklahoma, they have had at least 11 tornadoes to date. two deaths coming from that. here is the worst from all of this. that deadly and severe weather headed towards joplin, missouri, where 123 people have been killed from that monster tornado that touched down. more coming up later on in the show. >> jeff, thank you very much. for the first time in 17 years, safety guidelines have been updated for the deadliest catches, their so-called toxic fish list. the health hazard assessment is cautions women and children to stay clear of perch, or bass.
they contain unsafe levels of mercury and other toxins. >> now to the 411 and 408. they will implement a new area code implementing the overly method. this means residents signing up for new service will get a 669 instead of a 408 area code. all existing numbers will be staying the same but you will have to dial ten digits to make a call. the new number will be added next year. still ahead at 6:00, we sit down with a basketball legend brought in to help the warriors achieve glory. lawrence scott interviews jerry west in sports. a big change for baby products here in california. i'm scott budman. how silicon valley technology is letting your car become your friend on a social networking site. plus, why muni is facing a
after winning 16 straight elections, for the first time since 1978, dave smith's name will not be on the ballot in newark. smith announced he will not seek another term and he's going to retire when his current term ends in january. smith is described as california's most senior mayor. he tells the "san francisco chronicle" he wants to play with his grandchildren and do some fishing. the game of monopoly is not the only place where players can get out of for free. also courtesy of yesterday's supreme court decision, larry is here. they just opened the doors and let everybody out, right? >> not exactly. a lot of prisons would like that. governor brown is going to work out a deal where these guys
complete cost the county levels and prisoners go and people are going to be considered fairly harmless. but it does add another wrinkle to the budget it was already a mess. >> you will add 30,000 prisoners come up with something, 10,000 per prisoner instead of 20,000. these counties strapped all ready are going to be saying, what are you doing for us? but for the governor , it may help to justify his plea to the legislature, please allow us to put these temporary tax increases on the ballot and don't be surprised if along the way if local county law enforcement officers become his best friend. >> is there any more politically charged issue in the sense of
when you come up to your next election and public safety is concerned and people would point to maybe not governor brown but others and say, hey, you let more prisoners out on the street or you didn't back up law enforcement? this is so intertwined with politics, isn't it? >> and that's exactly what brown would say. he's going to say, do you want people asking you why you allowed 30,000 people out on the streets? >> okay. different subject. why such a big deal over redistricting san jose? why in this case? >> it's always a big deal, garvin, but for the last few times around the legislature has done this and they have redistricted in a way that has protected incumbents, republicans and democrats alike.
you have these crazy districts. and now you have an independent commission that will make a more compact approach. you know what? either way people are going to be upset if their neighborhoods get divided, school districts get divided, someone will be upset. >> still tonight at 6:00, afr mazing video into the newsroom as tornadoes touched down in oklahoma. plus, the latest from joplin, missouri, after the deadliest tornado in decades. and mounting concern tonight as the fda considers who is eligible for lap band procedures. before you parkr, car, i'll show you what you need to know before a vehicle break-in.
a piece of technology most of us take for granted is being taken and used to break into our homes. it's happening across the peninsula but could happen anywhere across the bay area. marianne will show you how to protect yourself. >> reporter: garvin, simply locking your door is not enough. you've got to hide things like your gps. >> roger loves taking in the view at palo alto but is also aware when he gets out for a walk he's taking a risk. >> realize that someone can break in no matter what you do if you have an alarm system, literally no one pays attention anymore. i put a bar on my steering wheel for driving off but that doesn't protect your belongings. >> reporter: cars parked are especially vulnerable because owners will likely be gone at
least 45 minutes walking the trails. so make your car lessen advertising, be sure you hide purses, ipods, and gps devices and then take one extra step. >> often times people leave a gps out or if they remove their gps unit they leave their accessory equipment attached which gives the thief the indication that they may have just hidden that gps unit and that it's still in the car. >> reporter: also, when you lock your valuables in the trunk, do it before you get to your destination. most burglars use a slim jim or break a window to get in. >> when you hit a tempered glass window, the entire window breaks away and gives you very quick access to the car. >> reporter: he also says it's a good idea to take a garage door opener with you. criminals can take off the back, jot down the code, program a new garage door opener with your
code. all they need to do is jot down your address from your registration and they can get inside your garage. another reason to lock up your car and take your valuables with you. police also say criminals can find out where you live by looking at your gps history. another good reason to pack it up before you park. reporting live from palo alto, marianne, nbc bay area news. the husband of scott filed suit against the transit agency as well as the driver of the 14 mission bus that killed him last april. according to the complaint, the muni driver was distracted for opening a candy bar. she hit the accelerator instead of the brake pinning him between two buses.
the suit accuses muni of carelessness, negligence, and failure to use reasonable care. well, obviously it can't be dangerous to be a pedestrian in california but a new survey says some places are far more deadly. riverside was labeled the most dangerous and the san jose was 26th and los angeles 27th. however, the top four cities were all in florida. still, almost 7,000 pedestrians were killed in the last decade in this state, a static which cost the state millions in transportation funds. experts note air bags reduce traffic deaths dramatically but there's no technology keeping more pedestrians alive. >> we all use the internet but may not realize how much our economy depends on it. business and tech supporter scott budman is here. >> the internet, more than a platform for business, it's a
huge business in itself and a report says that the net makes up 3% of the gross domestic product and has been responsible for 20% of our total economic growth. on top of that there is job creation. for every job lost because of the internet, 2 1/2 new jobs are created. another down day on wall street. stock still unable to rally past concerns that the european countries are carrying too much debt. social networking, it's so popular these days. your car may soon try to friend you. here's how. can a car be your friend? soon your car will be able to friend you on social networking sites like facebook and twitter. toyota and salesforce.com is
teaming up for technology and your car. >> when we think about toyota friend, we believe that the car needs to become your friend. and so if i'm on a social network, how does the car speak to me? how does the car integrate with me? >> reporter: imagine a tweet to tell you your car needs oil or a facebook update to you and your dealer or mechanic if your brake fluid is getting a little low. >> i think it would be great and make it more convenient to know when you need an oil change. for me i'm classic, 10,000 miles. the light has been on for 5,000 miles and i say, i don't want to go and change it. i'm the he'd deal person for that. >> reporter: you are probably thinking i can get this information from my car. and it's true. but here's the goal. to also get that information when you're here. >> and i'm able to see what is going on, right on my ipad, on my toyota iphone. >> reporter: a toyota iphone? now that's a mix of cars and
tech we'd love to see. meanwhile, we'll have to make do with our cars following us on the web. >> toyota says it will roll out the friend plan first in japan and then here in the u.s. frankly, with so many companies trying to form relationships with their customers, they better hurry before someone else gets to your facebook account first. >> interesting, scott. thanks. the jury in the chauncey bailey murder industrial trial just finished up the first day of dleliberations. chauncey bailey was killed and two other men. a confessed killer and defense star witness is testifying against him. he claimsaygr order all three people, including bailey to be killed. the jury resumes deliberations in the morning. now to the deadly tornado that ripped through joplin, missouri. tonight government officials say
that the tornado that devastated the city over the weekend was the highest category for destructive force. the tornado was placed in the ef 5 category. this means that the twister had winds of over 200 miles per hour. 123 people have died as a result of this storm. 1500 more are still missing. officials say that doesn't necessarily mean that they are injured or killed. their loved ones can't find them right now. and so they are not giving up. >> we are still in search and rescue mode and will be for the foreseeable future. >> we are hopeful that we will still be finding people. >> reporter: >> but there is the possibility that the search could be suspended in a few hours as the weather is expected to take a turn for the worst. high wind and heavy rain and lightning is forecasted. there is another possibility for another round of tornadoes. >> hopefully they will get -- >> oh, my gosh. >> -- out of there and safe. >> the motion is tremendous.
>> and this is why. this was a very frightening scene outside of oklahoma city. a local tv crew got up close and telephone pole snapped and was sent flying through the air. a tornado killed two people. when it was all over, the tornado left behind extensive damage. numerous cars and trucks were overturned on highways throughout the region. >> it's hard to really even fathom. still ahead at 6:00, a youth movement is under way for a surgery that some say is just too dangerous. and details on a new superbug headed our way. good evening. i'm meteorologist jeff ranieri. sunny skies today and then some real crazy changes for this time of year coming our way as we head into tomorrow. today we had 69 in san jose and san francisco with 59. we'll talk aboutowller oande gia showers and give you an update on the deadly weather rolling throughout the southern u.s.
in our health watch tonight, safer for baby, safer for you. banning bpa and baby products. bpa has been linked to neurological behavior in children and causes fertility problems and cancer in adults. the bill almost completely restricts the use of bpa and any product marketed to children under 3. the bill will now go to the senate for final approval before landing on the governor's desk. if governor brown signs the bill, they will ban the use of bpa in products. a southern california medical company wants to use its product to treat teenagers. the fda to approve lap band procedures for patients as young as 14. it reduces food intake. the company is now doing clinical tests on teenagers but
some health experts have expressed concern that a more long-term study is needed on the band especially before it's given to such young patients. lawrence scott joins us now. the puck has dropped. the sharks have to do it tonight or else? >> little room for error. there is no more season so what do you do tonight? you try to get going on the power play. giving it a game seven effort. plus, the warriors welcoming a legend to the organization. we sit down with jerry west and ask him about his team and the giants will be right here tomorrow facing florida. tonight, pablo. their series started with the fish. sports coming up. good evening, i'm chief meteorologist jeff ranieri. we're watching the clouds closely. we'll let you know if any rain theiasnt b2jpvfytt
that, plus me,or eoecedcndh well, whether you've just had a minor discomfort or a major illness, antibiotics cure what ails us. >> but superbugs against which drugs are virtually useless, now there is a new one to tell you about out there. and it's headed our way. crkp. it's shorthand for bacteria as
difficult to pronounce as it is dangerous. the latest in a line of superbugs, threats to our health against which most antibiotics are useless and this one, capable of causing infection, pneumonia and meningitis is headed to the bay area if not already here. >> we're looking for it and waiting for it. >> reporter: the doctor is 4ed of the al meet ta medical center and says that it was first discovered in north carolina ten years ago and has slowly been making its way across the country. and then finally last month the county of los angeles reported finding more than 300 cases of crkp, mostly among already sick patients in hospitals and long-term care facilities. >> we had exactly the same type of patients in the bay area as in l.a. county. we suspect there are few cases here now. we are just ignorant of those. >> reporter: he says there is a reason why it thrives in hospitals and strikes just the
very ill. it likes plastic. as in plastic used to make catheters and breathing tubes. >> these make materials that allows it to stick to plastic and it's inserted into patients in bad shape. >> reporter: patients are usually ill to begin with and it's hard to determine the exact cause of death. still, with most antibiotics useless in fighting crkp, experts say preventing infection is the most important defense. >> the first line of defense against this bug and all of the hospital infections is cleanliness. hospitals need to clean surfaces adequately. sometimes the germs are carried to the patient directly from the hands of the doctors and nurses. often they wash their hands and then touch the contaminated surface. that's called a lacks procedure. >> reporter: once more, officials say continued overuse of antibiotics is creating more
superbugs such as this one all the time. >> the significance is that we're only down to one or two anti-buy on the specifics that might work. the take away message is that for ten years, we will be down to no antibiotics and we'll see patients where there are none that will appear to be effective by the routine testing. >> reporter: and so while the bug may not be a threat to the general public, that doesn't mean they shouldn't be worried about it. >> experts say one reason the superbug has not yet been reported in san francisco is that hospitals are not required to. there is a long list of diseases and conditions that hospitals and doctors are required by law to report to the state but because it's so new, it's not on that list, at least not yet. >> a little windy today but overall a very pleasant day throughout the bay area. it's all going to change. just a matter of hours.
jeff ranieri, what can you tell us? >> that was me taking in the sun. it's hard to believe this late in the season we're going to see sierra snow and still some skiing. check that out. 73 in los gatos. 71 in livermore. most of the numbers on the board right now inland in the 60s, in the coastline, this advancing system gets close. we see clouds increase and then showers return. there is snow that could go as low as 5,000 feet for wednesday. already taking shape and producing rainfall near eureka as we head early throughout tomorrow morning and then mainly showers and cold air instead of 70s inland. we drop into the 60s and it
could stay in the 50s for tomorrow. by thursday, dry air and warmer weather back in the forecast. 11:p.m., it's cloudy. we're going to get the showers in here for you commuters. a tenth of an inch to 6:00 p.m. and giants get going on nbc bay area at 7:00 p.m. on wednesday. snow across the sierra. two to four inches in lake tahoe. a lot of bad weather. o oklahoma has had two deaths due to tornadoes and here is the horrific thing that i have been mentioning, this strong line of deadly weather is headed towards joplin, missouri, where that ef-5 tornado touched down on sunday. that severe weather, only 50 miles away at this point. over the next two hours they are going to be under the gun from
this major severe weather yet again. as we head toward tomorrow, mid-to upper 40s. 48 in fremont and livermore. for tomorrow, the sun will come out by the afternoon. after those morning showers. 67 in san jose. 65 in los gatos. we're also looking mid-to upper 60s for the peninsula. 67 in redwood city and 60 in san francisco. we'll also see the 60s transitioning here for napa, concord, san rafael. morning time on that deadly severe weather t slowly warms up over the next couple of days. tomorrow morning, watch out for slick roads. >> who is this and what do we do to her to get her so angry?
>>. >> don't mess with her. we're powerful ladies, aren't we? thank you. what a welcome. the playoffs could continue or come crashing down on the sharks. here's the latest from vancouver. game five had better go the sharks' way or another year of stanley cup dreams. this has been killing the sharks, both sitting up alex burrows. it's 1-0 just into the first int mission. comprehensive coverage of every team, on comcast sportsnet. playoff analysis and inside access goes deep. sportsnet central. having swept the dodgers and the a's this past week, they try to get a sweep into motion. here's a good sign. pablo throwing the ball around
as he works on returning from a wrist injury. matt cane will face a much improved marlins team. and the giants keep winning it by someone new each night coming up big. >> that's the way it was last year. a contribution and that's how we did it he a it seems like that's the way we're doing it right now. >> madison versus sanchez. and back into the post season, the basketball legend that can only help today to remember jerry west to the organization. he's been an all-star player and accomplished coach and executive.
where he has been, championships have followed. now he's on the executive board. we sat down with west to talk about his plans for making an immediate impact with the warriors. >> what is it when you put your stamp on a product, a basketball product? what is that. >> you know, i don't look at myself that way at all. i think some of us are fortunate enough to be in something that we have good fortune in. a lot of people think it happened because you work hard. there's tons of people that work hard. i really believe in good fortune. but i also believe in risk taking. part of building a franchise today because if you look at the teams, there is so many teams close together. look at the devastation with one player. one player. and if you can apply the right players, very good players that they have right here already, put a really good player out
